Forum: etree Subject: Image Clutter when browsing artist collections

Has anyone else noticed more & more images sprouting-up while browsing artist collections on the LMA? This is the page view I'm talking about:
http://www.archive.org/browse.php?mediatype=collection&;collection=etree&field=%2Fmetadata%2Fcreator

IMHO, it has gotten out of hand. It's cool when the bigger collections (i.e. 100+ shows) have images, as these act as visual signposts for navigating the alphabetical display. However, it creates cumbersome clutter when dozens of acts with 1 or 2 shows just *have* to get their image into the mix for free advertising.

Is there a way to view the same browsing page without the band images? If not, is there a chance that images might be restricted to bandswhose collections contain a certain minimum number of shows???

Yes indeed... I'm in agreement that the 'mass picture additions' that seemed to have taken place recently are a BAD thing. Images are great for browsing & finding larger collections of well-known or active artists, but does a group with just 4-5 shows & no updates for a year or more need an image? I think not. At the VERY least they should all be the same size. Currently the page is disorganized and hard to navigate. I'm all for progress, but this isn't it.
